Best car ever! Not perfect…

Bought my 2000 GT new with 6 miles on it and unfortunately someone hit and run me so insurance bought it from me in May 2021. Besides new batteries, oil changes, a few tune ups, tires etc the car was an excellent value for me especially when gas jumped to over $5 a gallon. All the co workers who laughed at me when I first got it had to sell their gas guzzling vehicles to buy smaller better on gas vehicles. I could put a ten foot long board inside over the positioned “down” passenger seat, always left the back seats down and yes the car is well known to have a ton of cargo space. I was getting ready to paint it (yes paint did peel over time) and overhaul the engine (high mileage is another known factor of engine problems) so I could drive it ANOTHER 237,000 miles but it was not meant to be!! I could go on and on but one last thing….I HAD THE OG BRAKES ON IT…..I down shifted a lot!! Truly fun car! Loved getting into it, driving it & I loved the look of my Celica nicknamed BULLET The Celica has been given the moniker SEX ON WHEELS…..Amen !!!

Great car

It's still sporty 20 years later. Really ahead of it's time in terms of body style. Interior wise it's more of a 2 seater. Very comfortably I might add. The back seat really for kids I'd say. But don't let it fool you. When you drop the rear seats there is quite a bit of room. I can't tell you how many times I've heard. "All of that was in there?!" It also does well on gas. Street or highway. It's decent in terms of speed. But where it excels is in its handling. All of that out together, makes it an exceptional value and a fun drive.

Most reliable car I have owned!

I have owned for over 8 year and I love it. It’s Fun to drive reliable and great on gas! Too bad they discontinued them. Toyota should bring back more cars like that
